Viagra Fast

Viagra fast “What is that?” the boy sneers at the foreign-looking food during lunchtime.

Viagra fast Among American-born children of immigrants, viagra fast there’s a common story about bringing a non-American lunch to school. Viagra fast The child at first would be proud of the food, viagra fast but over time, viagra fast as they realize that other kids, viagra fast especially the popular ones, viagra fast don’t approve, viagra fast they may go home and beg for a replacement. Viagra fast The Lunchables, viagra fast please! The PB&J sandwiches. Viagra fast Anything except the stinky tofu. Viagra fast Anything except the fish with its eyeballs and scaly skin. Viagra fast Anything but…

Viagra fast Tonight at my regular book club, viagra fast the conversations had drifted into that territory. Viagra fast The majority of us were American-born children of immigrants. Viagra fast Stories of sneering boys. Viagra fast Stories of how a friend stood up for someone else. Viagra fast Laughter ensued. Viagra fast Despite being the American-born child of my Hong Kong raised parents and bringing regular Chinese food to school, viagra fast my lips were thin. Viagra fast Yes, viagra fast I did remember eating fried rice or other strange foods. Viagra fast And yet I hated sandwiches, viagra fast because they often surfaced memories of gagging on the soggy dough. Viagra fast Instead, viagra fast as I heard stories of being ostracized for having foreign food, viagra fast all I felt was this overwhelming feeling of loneliness.

Viagra fast Because I remember sitting alone during lunchtime, viagra fast because I lacked friends.

Viagra fast Yes, viagra fast eventually, viagra fast there were people that I surrounded myself with, viagra fast but they weren’t friends at all, viagra fast but rather people that proved that I wasn’t a loner, viagra fast the outsider, viagra fast the outcast. Viagra fast They were proof that I fit in, viagra fast even thought I didn’t really fit in.

Viagra fast And because of that, viagra fast nobody saw my lunch. Viagra fast Because nobody was there to see. Viagra fast Sometimes I must have just eaten quickly so that nobody would see that I was eating alone. Viagra fast Just enough to satisfy my hunger. Viagra fast Then I would watch all the other kids.

Viagra fast How did they fit in? How did they figure out how to eat lunch? How did they get so popular? How did they make friends?

Viagra fast All of these thoughts, viagra fast those anxious moments tumbled through my mind as I watched my friends talk about their struggles. Viagra fast During a pause, viagra fast I blurted, viagra fast “I ate alone, viagra fast so nobody ever saw what I ate.”

Viagra fast One person who had just joined the book club turned and said, viagra fast “Oh I did too. Viagra fast Well I had one friend.”

Viagra fast To which I mumbled as everyone turned back to their laughter, viagra fast letting the loneliness yank me to a place of sorrow, viagra fast which sedated me for the rest of the hour, viagra fast “I didn’t have any.”
